Wherever your holiday travel plans may take you this season, make sure to take advantage of all of the resources DAN has available to help you travel safely.
As you prepare for your trip, check out DAN Trip Tips, where you can find checklists and quick tips about weather considerations, research resources and what not to bring on your travels. You can access these resources on www.DAN.org/triptips or on DAN’s social media channels. Follow us on Twitter at DAN_America or like our Facebook page at Divers Alert Network.
DAN Members can also login to their online account and refer to the Worldcue® Planner Real-Time Travel Intelligence® Resource. This is a continually updated database of pertinent travel information on destinations around the globe and it is a benefit of DAN membership.
If you are planning dive travel for the holidays and have any dive-related medical questions, refer to the DAN Medical FAQs on www.DAN.org, call the DAN Medical Informational Line at
Leave the Worries at Home
You can cover your travels with one of three tiers of per-trip travel insurance to handle unexpected situations that may arise during your travel. DAN Travel Insurance features coverage for cancellations and interruptions, medical expenses, baggage and more. DAN Travel Insurance lets you enjoy your vacation knowing you’re covered should an unforeseen event occur.
Explore the tiers of coverage available to you at www.DAN.org/trip.
NEW: For the Frequent Traveler
DAN has also added a new program designed for the frequent traveler. DAN Annual Travel insurance provides you year-round protection for all of your trips for one flat fee. This program is designed for the adventure traveler and leisure tourist alike and offers significant trip cancellation and interruption coverage, extensive equipment and baggage coverage as well as emergency medical and dental. It also features the coverage you’ve come to expect from DAN, such as emergency medical evacuation and access to around-the-clock travel assistance. Whether your travels take you diving, boating, golfing, hiking, skiing or relaxing at your favorite getaway, you can travel with confidence knowing you are covered any time you are 100 miles or more from home. Learn more at www.DAN.org/annual_travel.
On the Road
If you run into troubles on your travels, DAN Members can access DAN TravelAssist, which provides up to $100,000 of emergency medical evacuation assistance coverage when you’re more than 50 miles from home. TravelAssist also provides a whole range of services including prescription assistance, interpreter assistance, emergency message relays and a host of other travel benefits, all of which can be accessed by calling the DAN Emergency Hotline (+1-919-684-9111). This membership benefit is not part of an insurance plan and is not exclusive to diving. Whether you are diving or not over the holidays, you have a valuable resource through DAN.
Enjoy a happy and safe holiday season.
